my two cents 1000

We’re closing out our last full week of the Hell Plaza Oktoberfest with Dr. Jahnke’s review of John Carpenter’s Body Bags: Collector’s Edition from Scream Factory.  Just four more reviews to go, but Jahnke’s saving a couple real gems for last.

Also today, we’ve posted our in-depth review of a true classic and a very long awaited Blu-ray release: Warner’s The Right Stuff: 30th Anniversary Edition.  Not only is this a great film, but it’s a bit of smart satire that’s also deeply admiring of those the men – test pilots and astronauts alike – who exemplify the film’s title.  And the Blu-ray looks and sounds pretty terrific, so don’t miss it.  [Read on here...]

We’ve got some great news today for you fans of the BBC’s Sherlock: PBS has just announced that Season Three will officially premiere here in the States on 1/19/14 on Masterpiece, following the 9 PM broadcast of Downton Abbey.  This is bar none my favorite show on television right now, so I’m very excited by this.  As before, the season will contain three new 90-minute episodes: The Empty Hearse (1/19), The Sign of Three (debuts on 1/26) and His Last Vow (2/2 – Superbowl Sunday as it happens), eached based on a classic Sir Arthur Conan Doyle story.  Blu-ray and DVD versions (SRP $39.98 and $29.98) are NOW available for pre-order on Amazon.com (street date is TBA, but our guess with be early Feb 2014)!  You’ll find the temp cover art below.  And of course, the BBC has confirmed that Season Four is already in the works.   Great news all around!
